Douglas Roy Edkins

d. March 9, 2024

1941 ~ 2024

On March 9th, 2024 the world lost an incredible man, Doug Edkins. 

Doug was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and teacher. He was an amazing role model to all that knew him. Doug was known for his easy-going nature, kind demeanour and warm blue eyes. He will be missed by all. 

He is survived by his children, Kinnon Tkach (Colin), Krista Edkins Lambert (Darren), and Gregg Edkins (Kana), his eight grandchildren – Kailey, Kira, Terrin, Gage, Wyatt, Reed, Sumire and Ayano, his brother Don Edkins and numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws.   

Doug was predeceased by his wife Bonnie Edkins, parents Jack and Margaret Edkins, siblings Morris Edkins and Marlene Bergsgaard.

Doug was born in Sudbury, Ontario on January 3rd, 1941 and raised in Clearwater, Manitoba. 

Doug taught middle school at Edmund Partridge and Ken Seaford.  He spent many hours coaching both his kids and his students. 

Upon retirement, Doug and Bonnie moved to Pinawa, MB where they travelled, golfed, played bridge and curled.  They enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren and ‘Papa’ taught another generation to be environmentalists. 

The family wishes to thank everyone for their support and kindness. 

We love you Dad, cheers!
